Research summary

To decrease development time and costs, modelling is increasingly being used in aerospace engineering design, particularly in the design of complex multidisciplinary systems such as flight control systems, landing gear systems and health monitoring systems. Modelling is typically done within the context of the systems development process (SAE ARP 4754A), which is used today for the development and certification of aircraft systems on platforms such as the Boeing 787 and the Airbus A380 and A350 among others.

To have credible simulation results, the accuracy of the modelling must be considered, including the model fidelity required, model validation, uncertainty quantification (UQ ...
